I switched 10 years ago to Java after 15 years of C/C++ (and an odd
assortment of other languages) and certainly agree with the idea of not
wanting to use another language.     Think of Java as the family SUV, not
particularly fast and nimble when you need high performance or very low
level work but what is it good for nothing is better (rock solid code that
doesn't require the above).   That being said you should learn it but learn
it with other languages.
